Benefits!

Papaya

Actually, papaya contains substances that cause the vessels to dilate and therefore provide more blood on the area. Where there is more blood, there is more oxygen, where there is more oxygen, there is more cell life. Papaya and lemon contain antibacterial properties that will kill off acne-causing bacteria from the skin. Papaya also has a deep-cleansing action that will push out all the gunk from clogged pores. Because of an enzyme called papain!

Papain
Promotes skin regeneration. Contains anti-inflammatory properties that heals conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema. Exfoliates skin. Lightens skin tones and decreases pigmentation. Acts as a skin softener that smoothens out rough skin and clears acne.

Lemon
Acts as a natural astringent. Tightens large pores. Kill germs on the skin’s surface. Deep-cleanses pores and refreshes skin.

Ok, this is me after using this homemade papaya face mask. No filters whatsoever!
